Food Safety

A Global Perspective

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The safety of the food supply greatly influences consumers globally. Many developed countries have elaborate standards and guidelines to enhance the safety of food produced domestically. In order to gain a perspective of the state of global food safety and the direction in which it is heading, past events that have shaped government and consumer response must be considered. For the most part, many of the major food safety scares are associated with intentionally adulterated or microbiologically contaminated products. Depending on the type of foodborne illness outbreak, the emergence of a new food safety risk may be signalled. China's food manufacturing sector and growth as a food exporter has increased dramatically in the past decade, presenting significant challenges for China's regulatory agencies. Indeed, Chinese food safety is a significant issue for the Chinese people and the rest of the world.
